This blog contains photos, mainly taken during diving around Perth and other parts of Western Australia, with occasional other locations thrown in. This header photograph was taken during a trip to Sipadan Island off the coast of Borneo. It shows a Grey Reef Shark disappearing into the gloom, which drops to around 600 metres deep - I was at around 30 metres!!

Leaf Scorpionfish seem quite uncommon, but I think they are so well camouflaged that we just don't notice them. They are only 8-10cm long and sit quietly on the reef looking just like leaves! Their bodies are tall and slim and they sway gently in any current. They vary in colour from yellow through red to brown and black. These two shots were taken at Sipadan Island off the NE coast of Sabah, formerly Borneo and the fish were only a few metres apart - hopefully they are a pair.
